@Heyside yay to finally getting started!!
Feeling better this morning but still a tad uncomfortable
We got news this morning from the dr that out of our 12 eggs collected and fertilised with ICSI that we have only 4 embryos
We now wait til day 5
I'm just wondering what other people have experienced and what conversion rates were
I'm just hoping we get that one lucky one
Thanks so much for all the advice and well wishes
@Heyside good luck for your cycle !!! Its funny how at different stages of this journey we either pray for AF to come and other times to stay away. I dont think i will test. Im not very confident at the moment and too scared to know the outcome.
@Heartnutella good to hear you are feeling a little better today. 4 embryos is great. Fingers crossed they progress nicely for you over the next few days.
Don't feel too disheartened. Whether I get 4 eggs or 18 I always only get 1-2 blastocysts at the end of 5 days. Sucks to go through all that and get one but that's how it is.
Well I'm 8dp5dt and the line is getting lighter. Barely there now (on POAS). I'd say it hasn't worked. Why won't you stick little embries!!!!! You're killing me. Starting to feel a bit AF crampy too! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1464233901.875189.jpg
I've been reading the thread and it is great to know I'm not alone in the craziness that is IVF.
I'm a little worried that things are going pretty crappily and wanted to see if anyone had similar experiences or thoughts.
This is my second cycle and both times I seem to get few eggs at collection, and even fewer than are mature or fertilise.
Both cycles have had 20+ follicles on US, first cycle 8 eggs, 4 mature and none fertilised (w PICSI). Thought endometriosis may be contributing more (also have PCOS Plus MFI), so had laparoscopic clearing out.
Now second cycle (egg collection yesterday) I had 5 eggs, 3 mature enough and awaiting for full fertilisation results but nurse says not good (not fully fertilised, have to wait).
I don't get it. I don't get how they can't get more eggs out if I had so many follicles, and I don't get why so few are fertilising. Totally at a loss.
